A wrench is an invaluable tool for general repair and maintenance. The grip and mechanical advantage it provides enables the user to apply torque to turn nuts and bolts.
Three of the most common wrenches found in American homes are the pipe wrench, the adjustable wrench and the combination wrench.
As everyone who has been through an apprentice program knows, bolts are used in construction, manufacturing, and assembly of almost everything. By having a combination wrench set at the ready, you can show that you have the ability to place or remove a bolt easily and efficiently.
Toolkits come with a variety of selections from a basic 8 piece wrench set, on up to 16, 32, 64 or even 256 piece or more sets. While a few common wrenches will cover most tasks, having a large toolkit with a full selection of wrenches insures that you are ready for any job that comes your way.
Torque wrenches are precision tools and should be treated as such. Although most micrometer wrenches have a reversible ratchet head, they really should not be used as a ratchet, and especially not as a breaker bar. Most people who break their torque wrenches do so by trying to loosen an overly tight bolt with it. This overly stresses the internal mechanism, causing it to break, especially if the micrometer isn't set to a higher torque value than the pressure that is being applied.
